Dukoff Metal Tenor Saxophone MouthpieceDukoff's Tenor Saxophone mouthpieces feature construction from Dukoff's custom Silverite metal. This contributes to a bright "edgy" tone with depth and guts for an exciting sound. The shank of the mouthpiece has been elongated to get a better grip on the cork when tuning. The insert for the teeth is slightly contoured for more comfortable playing. The response is instantaneous and clean.

I'm on my third tenor Dukoff now. My first one was a D8 in the summer of 1989 and it was loud, bright and edgy on alto and tenor, exactly what I was looking for as an aggressive 18-year old. I played it for a long time and then one day in college I dropped it on a hard floor and bent the tip. I went to the local music store where the sax doctor works; I was in Boston at the time, looking for another one. To my surprise the sax doctor didn't have one. So I bought a PL8. It was more expensive and I didn't like it quite as much. So I found myself bouncing back and forth between a hard rubber Berg Larson 110/0, and an Otto Link 8 New York Model. For some reason I resisted the temptation of buying a new Dukoff D8 partly because my first band leader on the cruise ship used a Dukoff and sounded absolutely awful and couldn't stop squeaking. I couldn't stand to listen to anybody use a Dukoff for years after that (Even David Sanborn who had been my hero for years and years). My ears where tainted. He sure was loud though I'll give him that. Five years ago I needed a tenor after playing just alto for about 7 years. I bought a lousy Cannonball Big Bell Global Series without lacquer. I tried a couple mouthpieces and the sound was just raw. So this time I called WWBW to order a Dukoff. I don't know what prompted this choice. Again they didn't have any D8's in stock just like in Boston but they had an X9. It didn't sound like anything special on that first Cannonball because it was a lousy horn but I kept the mouthpiece. I recently traded my first Cannonball for a new black nickel, don't cringe, Cannonball Stone Series. The first time I put my Dukoff X9 on that horn it was magic. I love the X9 even more than that D8 I had. Obviously the different model of horn had something to do with it but I'm not advertising Cannonball's. Sound starts from the mouthpiece. I'd try to describe the sound but I'd be saying the same thing everybody else says about the mouthpiece they like; big, fat, robust, and bright with a fat bottom. Not quite as bright as a D8 but bright nonetheless, the way a Dukoff is supposed to sound. You should try it.
Goll man why can't I shut up about sax equipment? Call me the mouthpiece mouse cause I can't stop trying different mouthpieces just to see what they do. Sound starts with the player, your airstream. Dukoffs have the potential to get a really great range of collors all simultaniously. Like a whole rainbow of flourescents, neons, pastels, from invisible red to invisible purple and all the aurially visible colors in between. It's kind of like looking into the brightest light you've ever seen but not having to squint to see it or look away. And the buzz is amazing.
I recently bought a Dukoff after years of wanting one. For the price, it is the best mouthpiece you can get for rock, R&B or jazz (not straight-ahead, though). I find it incredibly easy to dial back on the "edge" and play with a warm, rich tone, but just as easily peel paint with a jet of unadulterated cutting sound. My favorite aspect of the piece is that I do not lose any tone quality when I play very loudly. However, it is not for everyone. For starters, the metal is unique, to say the least. When I first played the mouthpiece, I was dismayed to find that my teeth are more than able to scratch the very soft pewter. The marks are only cosmetic and do not affect anything. Some people may not like how the Dukoff plays at first, but I found it very easy to get used to. Granted, I do believe I received a good unit. I have heard others talk about purchasing damaged or asymmetrical Dukoffs. Luckily WWBW has a liberal return policy if this happens to you. In all, I find the Dukoff D8* is the best contemporary mouthpiece for the price. I look forward to playing and purchasing other Dukoff mouthpieces in the future.
I play a Keilwerth ST90 tenor and i just got the D8 to play with it. Its great amazing feel and responce. It preforms in my oppoion better then a Otto Link or Selmer C*. It is a little bright but a Rovner Dark takes the edge right away
I've played on a D7 for a little bit and recently picked up a D8 for more malleability. This piece is powerfull and bright. Easy to subtone. I will say that this piece is difficult to control. It takes a little bit of work to get it to sound good. It's really easy to sound too bright and thin. The best way I've found to mitigate that is just to play on this mouthpiece often and consistently.
I love the power of this piece and enjoy playing on it when I have the time to get reacquainted with it. For the days that I've been off for a week or two, I picked up a Yanagisawa 7 metal. Much easier to reel in but not quite as much 'oomph' behind it.
